Merry Christmas All

This sonographer is celebrating another Christmas with family.  We ventured out of Houston during one of the worst storms in American weather to travel up to north Texas to visit my mom and pop.  They are both in the mid eighties.  They are as well as you can be when you are that seasoned.  We made it up in 10 hours due to the ice storms plaguing Texas last Friday.  It was rough.  My Daddy took us out to dinner on Saturday night.  We ate steaks at a restaurant in Wichita Falls, Texas.  McBrides is a wonderful place to go if you crave mesquite broiled cow.  We ventured down on Sunday morning to visit my mother and her husband.  Not all families stay together as many of you know.  We were met with ribs, and brisket, and warm rolls and the usual array of veggies and salads.  Mom made some pies.  I am not a person that likes sweets, but I will eat what my mother cooks.  The outside temperature in the wee hours (8 am) of monday was 27 degrees F.  We loaded up and shoved off at 11:00 am.  Smooth sailing till we hit Houston.  Always a nasty place for cars and trucks (Mostly big ass trucks....Why do people drive them now with gas so high)?  I guess they make more money than I do. This morning I was woken by my wife's pekinese dog opening packages under the Christmas Tree.  I kid you not!

The dog found his chew toy in a box, and managed to get it out.  It was squeaking at 7:30 AM. and he had also managed to open other boxes. My wife posted the video on here facebook account.  My wife and son soon came down to enjoy the usual Christmas festival of spreading paper all over the living room to see what Santa left us.  I got some wonderful dress pants.  My son got his new HD TV for his bedroom. (I had nothing to do with that gift).  My wife got muk luks(spelling).  Boots that are warm.  I have a new wide screen monitor for my computer.  My old Samsung monitor was gently going to the grave.  Thanks Samsung for a flat screen that lasted 12 years.  My son gave me a new computer keyboard because I tapped on the old monitor to wake it up.  He thought I was making noise on an old keyboard.  Old monitors need to be tapped to life.

Today is a balmy 53 degrees F.  My son got some cash, and he will use it to buy a new skateboard.  I think he is great.  He is athletic, and has so many GF's, He must be careful lest he gets molested.  He is a smart looking gentleman!

Anyways.  Be blessed all.  I am now an ultrasound contractor.  I will travel anywhere to see patients or provide education.  I am hoping 2014 will be a better year for business.  Contact me if you need some help in the ultrasound business.  Merry Christmas.  Be safe.  TJW
